She flew the coop
Category: robin's egg blue | Posted: Mon May 21, 2007 2:55 pm
Mama bird has flown the coop. I checked on Saturday, and there was one little peep and three eggs. Checked again on Sunday, and the count was 2-2. I went out this morning, camera in hand, and found...
Nothing. Wait, not nothing. There was one feather. But that was all. No Mama. No peeps. No shells. Just an empty nest. I guess she didn't like her privacy being invaded so much. Oh well. I can only hope she would have moved her family whether we watched her or not, having built her nest so close to the garage and driveway.
So that ends this blog. Thanks for reading.

Nothing new on the eggs. I took a picture yesterday, but it looks just like all the rest. I'm not sure if Mama Bird is getting used to us, but she is flying off less and less. Only when we get too close. We're tyring to give her a wide berth.

a little mamma is going to have babies

I was washing the car on Saturday, and every time I went into the garage, a bird flew out of the rhododendron bush beside the garage door. It took me a while before I got curious. Sure enough, there was a nest with four precious blue eggs. I took photos the past three days and hope to keep snapping them until the little guys fly away. Or until the mama robin pecks my eyes out. Lol.
Obviously, it is going to be a little boring until something happens, but I had all the pics, so I posted them.
